Time to Ban Intersections
- Two wounded women on a blood-stained section of sidewalk flagged down a police cruiser near 69th Street and Ashland Avenue. They were two of four people shot there Tuesday night.
Had it been another intersection, perhaps the officers would've been surprised.
"I can tell you several people have been shot on this block in the past couple of months," an officer said. "People always hang out here."
This particular intersection has had nine people shot there this summer. Since nothing else seems to work, maybe making it into some sort of cul-de-sac or dead end or digging a 40-foot hole that folks (and people) can fall into might be a step to eliminate crime.
